(DONALD, Ore.) - An Aurora man is in custody today after fleeing the scene of a crash involving another vehicle and a school bus full of children.

According to Deputies, the preliminary investigation revealed that the Peterbuilt truck operated by 49-year old Timothy Brown, of Sheridan, was traveling west on Ehlen Rd NE. As Brown approached the intersection with Butteville Rd NE, a black SUV driving eastbound made a left hand turn in front of him.

There were 20 children on the bus at the time of the crash. The North Marion School District Bus was operated by 48-year old Robin Martin, of Canby.
Martin and four children had complaints of pain, no other injuries were reported. Another school bus arrived on scene to transport the children to school. None of the involved parties were transported to the hospital.
A witness to the crash gave a description of the SUV, driver and a direction of travel. Deputies were able to locate fresh tire tracks in a gravel driveway a short distance away.
Deputies contacted 40-year old Victor Arnoldo Guevara, of Aurora at the residence and he was taken into custody without incident.
Guevara was booked into the Marion County Jail; charged with Failure to perform duties of a driver when property is damaged and Failure to perform duties of a driver to injured persons.
